This 633 km adventure started being something physically challenging to do with my four-year-old daughter (Becky). However, it turned out to be the ultimate bonding experience and how she taught me to see the world through the eyes of a child again. “It is your perspective of a moment that makes it good or bad.… Continue reading Rediscovering the spirit of adventure.
